    Looks like a good fun track and for me that's what matters. Will make a change to drive a fantasy track, if I want to drive a layout that would never get made in real life (safety, costs, etc) then this is a cool option.

    I think the reason why sim companies are taking so long to create tracks is just the detail now involved. With laser scanning, thousands of reference photos, tonnes of testing and also all the legal licencing work it's almost like a small movie production now :laugh:

    Well, it takes longer to make a decent fantasy tracks IMO, you have to design the track rather than copy pasting a real track :D

    Also, IMO, they may lack the money to license and create "real tracks" with a different rhythm, hence why the creation of fantasy tracks, to "cover the hole" and avoid spending money on licensing a real track..

    It's a kind of give and take in both cases :) In a fantasy track your imagination is the limit of what you can achieve but yes you have to work on the layout more. On the other hand when you are trying to recreate something from reality you have to get and model all the details right and that takes an awful lot of time as well. Not necessarily the track but kerb heights, rumble strips, markings, all the little details on the buildings, areas where the wall and Armco starts and stops, etc.

    Because knowing what some are like on here, they will notice that a kerb is one inch higher on the sim than it is in real life! :laugh:;)

    In that case I agree with Blimey. I'm also a mere racing guy and it's called "Your racing simulator". A fantasy road track can be driven in real life it's easy to do: Open your frontdoor and enjoy life! Same with the streetcars e.g. the SUV. What the hell brings somebody to drive such (ugly) one in an racing simulator? - do it in real life please/ thx!

    i so utterly fail to see why one should start a fight here?! a publisher presents you with a free track which you may or may not use. Mmmmh. Other than: "I love the images" or "that corner reminds of where I live" I wouldn't know what else to say, apart from: thx publisher.
    (disclaimer: i own the game but do not have it installed atm as i do not much fancy it)

    I keep saying this but people don't get it; even though they aren't designed to race, the SUV's can still race, there is nothing stopping you doing so and i am sure it could be fun!

    No time that was spent to create any piece of content in the game was "wasted". The time to write this post, however...

    I very much welcome this kind of tracks to AC as they are for me the only reason to ever drive street cars. Street cars on the racing track is a complete meh to me.

    Some of us still need to learn the value of gratitude. My 5 year old sun is starting to get it...
    I hope the ungrateful individuals dont mess up for the rest of us. I wonder when I design fictional liveries for real life content people go like "we want real liveries not some fictional designs"?
    It was so tiring to read until here, unbelievable how 2017 started with a desillusion for Kunos to finally have a nice clean comment thread about their new FREE content. Not completely innocent myself in the past but way past that point of "what I want or dont want".
    So to @kunos , thank you for the music

    ....and to all the haters / pessimists / spoilt childs....whatever
